I am riding in the MS 150 from Houston to Austin in April. Actually, it is really a 180 mile ride — 90 miles two days in a row.
To prepare for the ride, I’ve joined a team and expect to go on training rides with them soon. All the riding I do between now and the MS 150 will be to train for the event. I’m also getting to work on the least desirable (for me) aspect of this ride: the fundraising.
Now, don’t get me wrong — I don’t mind raising money for the fight against MS. In fact, the reason I chose this ride over other charity fundraisers was the cause. My cousin, who looked after my father in his last years, and a good friend both are coping with MS, so it has hit home. But I’ve never been comfortable asking others for money, and I’ve never been good at it as a result.
But I’m asking you now. Would you please consider donating to my personal MS fundraising page? The process is easy, and doesn’t take long. Just visit this site, click on the “Donate to Ray” button, and follow the instructions.
Thanks so much for your help.
Keep asking Noob. In my experience, people are super generous and really want to help those in need. They just need to be asked. Over the last could of years, my team (Team Climb On!) has raised over $53,000 for the National MS Society.
Just by asking, simple as that.
Good work, Noob!
One donation already. Arlyn, thanks for the encouragement. And if that was you who made the anonymous donation, thank you for that, too. If not, thanks to whoever it was.
You’re very welcome.
